2x optical zoom + dual OIS

Moments, up close and clear

Take crisp and clear shots with the Galaxy Note8's dual camera. It supports 2x optical zoom to let you zoom in clearly. And both cameras have optical image stabilisation (OIS) to produce photos that come out beautifully steady even with camera shake.

Live focus

Bokeh effect comes into play

Get the focus you want before you press the shutter button. Live focus lets you take beautiful bokeh shots where you make your subject stand out. If you're not entirely satisfied, you always have the option to adjust the level of background blur afterwards.

Dual Capture

Snap outside the frame

While you're focused on taking a Live focus photo, the Note 8 will also capture also what's happening outside the frame. That way you get to enjoy the moments you might have otherwise missed.
